    Miller AEA-200L

    Hello,

    I have a welder Miller AEA-200L and I wonder if the owner's book and the book of pieces is available. I checked if these volumes were available on the website of the manufacturer and found nothing. Also I think the welder is DC is that correct?

    The specification of the welder is :

    Model: AEA-200L
    Serial #: C12592
    Voltage: DC 85
    Amp: 200
    Duty cycle: 100%
    RPM : 3000

    Here are the specifications for the current is :

    Voltage: 100/220
    Amp: 20.4/20.4
    KVA: 4.5
    RPM: 1875

    Furthermore I know the date of manufacture.

    Thank you

    Excuse me for the text I do not speak English very well.

    Re: Miller AEA-200L

    If I am correct, this is an ac machine. An ac/dc machine would be AEAD-200L. In the late 90's I had an AEA-200-LE which was ac only with electric start. I bought the machine used from an LWS and they were able to aquire the owner's operating manual for me from the Miller factory itself. You may want to try that route if the website comes up short. Good machine, got rid of mine only to upgrade to Ranger 8. Should give you plenty of weld satisfaction.

    Your English is fine! Did you try this link?

    It does look like an AC only machine.

    Re: Miller AEA-200L

    If the welder is AC why it says 85 volts dc in the specifications?

    Thank you for the link to the manual but my welder not like it. Mine has 4 sockets 120 volts on the left side of the generator and a 220 volt sockets. More on the front it only has connectors to manually move the wire from the welder (15-30 amp, 30-50 amp, etc. ..) and a 110 volts DC making right under the connectors.

    Thank you

    Re: Miller AEA-200L

    You are right that the particular socket should be a dc volt socket to be used with dc only hand tools while welding. This should be the only one set up this way with the others being ac and the welder also producing ac welding voltage. What is date of manufacture and do you have pictures?

    The production date is ±1953, the welder has no electric start I start with a rope. I have not photos I take and send them.

    Okay, to change welding amperage output, do you need to change welding cable from plug to plug to change to different setting?

    Yes, manual link not correct for your machine. Tried search on Miller's site for manual with your serial number but site says number not correct. You may need to check number again and see if there are more, dont know.

    Wow! That is an old one! Old, but very nice! Forgot about it being made in the 50's. Your numbers are correct that you posted. It being made so long ago may be why Miller site cannot associate serial number with model number for a correct manual. You may need to contact them by email with your numbers and possibly get a paper manual or they may steer you in the direction of one. That is an Onan engine if I am correct, and I think if you lift the door on the side under the power recepticles, there is a switch you need to move to switch between welding and generator power.

    Re: Miller AEA-200L

    And i think the voltage listing under the model number and "Welding Generator" is actually 85 o.c. which is an open voltage current rating. Could be wrong but i think thats what it is.

    I'll follow your advice and contact the manufacturer for the books I think is the best solution!

    So he has a good chance what is AC, not DC

    Re: Miller AEA-200L

    That rating if I am correct, is the strength or the ability of the machine to establish an arc at the begining of a weld. The higher the number, the easier to start an arc, I think.

    Re: Miller AEA-200L

    Very good chance it is ac machine and not dc. Nothing at all wrong with welding ac, each has advantages and disadvantages. Looks like you have yourself a prize machine there! Take care of it and I am sure it will give you many pleasurable hours of welding. Good luck and hope I was able to help.

    Re: Miller AEA-200L

    mariogi,
    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new (to you) machine.

    It is in fact an AC welding output only machine - as evidenced by the "AC Power and Welding Generator" on the faceplate. However, because the unit produces AC utility power at a slower speed (1870rpm) than that for welding (3000rpm), there is a 115vdc power outlet to allow using a brush motor grinder or other similar power tool at the welding speed without having to return to the machine to reduce the engine speed to the power rpm and then again to reset the throttle to welding speed when ready to resume welding. This 115vdc power is in fact the field exciter voltage used to generate the welding output much like many other types/brands of welding machine.

    smawgmaw is 100% correct on the 85volts O.C. or open circuit voltage rating as well.

    Happy welding!

    I also am the proud owner of one of these. (Yet to hear it run.) I contacted Miller with an email when the online site would not recognize the sn#. I got an email back very quickly with a pdf file for my machine. Mine was made in 1957. You gotta love Miller Service. Good luck.

    Gotta love the old iron! Over 50yrs old and still going strong! Miller made some great machines way back then. My favorite has got to be the Miller Roughneck version.
